A meeting was held today with the 20 Premier League clubs voting in favour of the regulations, called Project Restart.

As confirmed by a statement, they gave the all-clear to resume games from Wednesday June 17.

The Telegraph even points to the specific fixtures that day, Aston Villa-Sheffield United and Manchester City-Arsenal.

These are the outstanding games to bring all the teams back to 29 matches played, so they could then pick up with the next round on the weekend of June 20 and hope to end the season by August 1.

Although Britain has a higher death toll from COVID-19 than Italy and currently has more daily deaths and new cases, the country and its football is taking a looser approach to the medical protocol.

The quarantine period if a player tests positive in Britain is seven days, compared to 14 in Italy.

There also does not seem to be the demand to automatically isolate the entire group if one of the players or staff tests positive for the coronavirus.

In Italy, the whole squad must remain in a training retreat for 14 days if one person – even if he’s in the staff and not a player – is positive for COVID-19.
